Sub-activity 4.1 has so far provided several frameworks to define and assess the quality of data, information and services in various domains of ITS.
The current task is to touch on the so-called Optimum Quality, exploring quality aspects in terms of what is most cost-efficient in terms of socio-economic benefit/cost ratios, and looking for different operating environments.
To set the stage for this task, 4.1 partners from Finland (Strafica Ltd, VTT and Traficom) have conducted a background analysis and developed a detailed work plan.
- starting from a theoretical perspective on Optimum Quality,
- taking stock on existing knowledge and expertise in Europe, and
- formulating a methodology that will address the task goals in an efficient and practical way.
This document also includes the summary of a recent workshop (Cologne, October 8, 2018), where 4.1 partners and road authorities discussed relevant issues and potential approaches for Optimum Quality.
4.1. partners will inform regularly about the future progress and results of this interesting, but also challenging task. For questions or possible participation in workshops etc., please contact BASt as the Activity Leader (Lubrich@bast.de)
